9/11 Anniversary; Military Contractors; A is for Afro
On the fifth anniversary of 9/11, are we really making progress against terrorism? We speak with Matt Brzezinski, author of "Fortress America: An Inside Look at the Coming Surveillance State," about the Bush administration's mixed record on fighting terrorism.
Plus, if George Bush won't enact emission caps to fight global warming, Arnold Schwarzenegger will. The Union of Concerned Scientists' Jason Mark looks into how the state of California is stepping up to fight global warming -- without the help of the federal government.
Also, for-profit companies are increasingly taking over military roles in American wars. We talk to Nick Bicanic, director of the new film "Shadow Company," about how military contractors are changing the face of war.
Finally, we speak with Mother Jones writer Sara Catania, author of the current article "A is for Afro," about growing up white in a largely black neighborhood in Chicago's South Side.
